    I think people who don't have big money need to be well read. The rich have a completely different perspective. I worked for a man who had a couple hundred million of self made monies, and he was sending a worthless kid to Wharton. I asked, "Why you wasting tens of thousands of dollars sending the lad to that expensive school, because he's going to flunk out in one or two semesters?" And he did. The boss/father replied, "It's not about education, but some will stick, it's about meeting and knowing the business partners for the rest of his life, and they are all rich people with connections." Only the rich are there and at other Ivy League schools and these people run our Nation. It's not about brains or hard work. Sorry, but that is reality.

    Asking questions based on questions that I asked...no buenos. But apparently you believe America stopped being great at some point in time. When did you first perceive that happening? Why?
